Did you know that Skeem Saam’s Liza van Deventer grew up in Pretoria and that she’s a professional dancer? The beauty chats to us about it here.
How would you describe yourself?
I’m very outgoing and love people. I’m passionate about nature and veganism – it’s the way I live my life. I don’t really associate with material things, I love spending time with the people that I love.
You’re originally from Pretoria; please share with us some of your fondest memories about growing up in the capital city.
When I was in matric I went to this place called Arcade Empire with my friends and we’d watch a few bands. Sometimes we’d go to varsity bakery and get doughnuts. I loved the spirit of the school I went to, Hoërskool Menlopark.
Apart from acting you’re also a professional dancer. Can one make a sustainable living from that?
Yes, I feel like if you know how to market yourself properly and if you share your gift with others in terms of teaching and choreography.
